Hallmark Will Include LGBTQ+ Stories and Characters in Upcoming Christmas Movies

Hallmark network will include LGBTQ+ stories and characters in its new Christmas movies for December 2020.

Hallmark channel decided it will include LGBTQ+ stories and characters in its upcoming Christmas movies for 2020. The channel has faced years of criticism for including Diversity to the programs.

Last year, the channel faced a backlash from the conservative group for its controversial Zola advertisement that included same-sex marriage. The network later pulled out the ads following a petition from One Million Moms, a conservative group.

List of 2020 Christmas movie lineup was announced in July, and many were disappointed due to none of the stories included LGBTQ+ characters.

According to the reports, there are a total of 23 movies for Christmas 2020, out of which 17 are new films for the Hallmark Movies and Hallmark Mysteries.

Some of the new projects include, "If I Only Had Christmas" with Candace Cameron Bure, "Christmas Waltz" with Lacey Chabert, "Cross Country Christmas" with Rachel Leigh Cook, and "Christmas Carnival" with Tamera Mowry-Housley.
